Captain Davidson To Take New
Position In Naval War College

Captain Lyal A.,Davidson, U. S. N.,
who has served as Commandant of
the Michigan NROTC unit through
the first fifteen months of its exist-
ence, is leaving Ann Arbor for the
Navy War College, it was announced
this week by the Department of Na-
val Science and Tactics.
Today at 1 p.m. Captain Davidson
will view for the last time the Michi-
gan cadets. The unit will be inspected
by Captain Davidson and will pass in
review before him, in the most im-
portant drill of the year so far for
the NROTC.
Captain Davidson will be officially
detached from his present duties on
Dec. 10. He will be relieved at that
time by Capt. Richard R. Cassidy,
U. S. N., who comes to the NROTC
from the command of the South
China Patrol.
Captain, Davidson, whose tour of
shore duty comes to an end this year,
is leaving Ann Arbor Dec. 19 and
will begin his War College course onj

Jan. 3. Prior to returning to sea, he
will study for five months in this
"command" course past and present
naval operations and the formula-
tion of plans for future strategy.
Captain Davidson describes him-
self as both "sorry and glad" to con-
clude what he terms " a very pleas-
ant and profitable tour of duty."
"I regret sincerely," added Captain
Davidson, explaining his feelings in
leaving the Michigan unit, "having
to end such a pleasant and impor-
tant duty as the training of young
officers, but as the termination of
my shore duty is approaching, I am
pleased at being afforded an oppor-
tunity for professional research by
the Naval War College prior to re-
suming my duties at sea."
He leaves Ann Arbor confident in
the future of the Naval Reserve Of-
ficers' Traiping Corps; "the interest
and latent possibilities displayed by
the students who have elected Naval
Science and Tactics has been very

Two "M' Grads
Serve Britain
In War Zone
Hill Joins U.S. Embassy.
Royce Answers Reqpies
For Technical Work
Both the United States and Bri-
tain, under the present aid-to-Britain
program, are now being served by
two recent Michigan alumni.
These two young Michigan gradu-
ates, the first, Lieut. Donald R. Hill.
'37E-'40, now an Army officer and
the second, R. Scott l4oyce, '36E, the
son of an Armi officer, are taking
anactive part in helping Britain win
the war.
Royce is the son of Brigadier Gen-
eral Ralph Royce, and Mrs. Lillian
Royce, '13. As an undergraduae he
majored in aeronautical engineering.
Since his graduation, he has been
associated with Consolidated Air-
crafts Corporatio, San Diego, Calif.
Last summer, he answered the call
for technicalrworkers to help Britain,
and joined as engineer aboard bomb-
ers flown to Britain. He and his
father, General Royce, flew to Bri-
tain together, his father as Assistant
Military Attache at the American
Embassy there.
In like manner, Lieutenant Hill re-
ently went to London as, a staff
nember of the American Embassy.
Lieutenant Hill last June completed
the ROTC Signal Corps unit with a
Second Lieutenant's commission; he
eas since completed a course at the
Signal 'School at Ft. Monmouth, N.J.
Radio Station
For Students
Is Envisioned
"We pause now for station iden-
tification. This is WRBR, Ann Ar-
bor." The student announcer stepped
back and themuted music of the
campus string quartet crescendoed to
form the background for an all-colle-
giate dramatization.
This vision is the realization of Prof.
Waldo Abbot's dream for a radio sta-
tion owned and operated by the Uni-
versity, a modern, convenient studio
to replace the current4Morris Hall
with its system of -relaying broad-
Present Problems
At present, the University broad-
casts from Morris Hall six programs
each week over WJR and seven week-
ly over W45D, a frequency modulation
hook-up. Broadcasting through the
channels of these Detroit stations
presents many problems. Forenost
among these is the difficulty in secur-
ing satisfactory hours to broadcast.
Then, too, it is impossible to obtain
adequate time to broadcast from the
commercial stations.
"If we had our own station," Pro-
fessor Abbot stated, "we would have
more time to broadcast and more stu-
dents would have an opportunity to
go one the air."
New Opportunities
According to Abbot, a local station
incorporating both AM and FM
broadcasting mechanisms, would pro-
vide new and unlimited radio oppor-
With the aid of rental and receiv-
ing sets the University Extension Ser-
vice could conduct classes within a
one hundred mile radius or, with an
AM system, within a more extensive
area. The School of Education might
engage in research in the field of
teaching by radio, post graduate cur-.
ricula could be extended to the homes
of former students, and constant and

intimate contact could be established
with State alumni, organizationssand
committees. And last, there would be
no limitation of broadcasting time.
ROTC Units Plan
Field War Exercises
Field exercises putting into actual
practice elementary combat princi-
ples will be carried out on a volun-
tary basis by a provisional war
strength company composed of soph-
omore, junior, and senior cadets of
the University ROTC.
Two of these exercises, which will
be held on Saturday afternoons, are
projected for the first semester, and
six for the second. The unit will be
commanded by cadet officers under
the supervision of Col. Egger and
Capt. K. R. R. Houston of the In-
fantry unit.
